    Coming back from NEWW treatment...

    I got this Victorinox INOX diver in last week on a trade, pretty tough watch based on the specs. Needed to be made a little more “toolish” so off to Northeast Watch Works for a beadblast. Duarte is the man. Will be back in a few days.

    How much did it cost? I've never been a huge fan of blasted watches as the finish doesn't last and it gets shiny spots with scratches

    It was $90. I’ve never had that issue as I have a pretty steady rotation so I’ve never really had them get too banged up.

    I've never experienced that, and I have had several watches and bracelets treated by the same source as the OP. He does great work! Prices can vary depending....

    Mike, your Inox looks really good man.

    He blasted my SKX007 (watch only...no bracelet). I'm very happy with his work. It looks better than new, in my opinion. I was never a fan of the factory bling finish.

    Not a bad price for that watch.

    For what it’s worth, I completely approve. I love the INOX and have an auto plus a titanium diver. Here’s my auto:
